Showhandling is like most practices depending on excercise, devotion and patience.
Through the years I have learnt more and more, both by doing it, watching other handlers' flaws and excels – and by attending courses held by the excellent handling teacher Gerhard O'Shea.
I train my own dogs already as puppies, from the first day they begin to eat real food, and I am happy when ever I am able to help my puppy-buyers and show their dogs. Provided that I and the dog have developed a trusting and joyfull relation showing can be a real pleasure to both of us :-).
Below some of my best - and best photoggraphed (!) - moments on shows.
